is our pretty bird Signe, she's a cockatiel! Signe lives in Sweden
with a pet of her own - she's adopted our small dog and she likes to
clean his claws as often as she can! At first he was a bit scary to her,
but now that she's shown that she's the queen of the castle, all is
well. Just like her owners, Signe loves popcorn, and the boxes above
all! She hasn't learned to talk yet but she can kiss on command and does
it with a little "Quiwitt" of joy!
Signe is a loner! Her favorite spot is on top of the kitchen door where
she can see into all the rooms of the apartment - since she's the boss
she has to make sure everything is to her liking!
She loves to do the nose cuddle, she can sit for a looong time getting
her neck rubbed gently. And every now and then she has to pick your skin
and ears of course, to make sure you're spotless! She also loves corn
(not just popcorn) and when she wants attention she'll throw them on the
floor and then fly down and start picking them. Needless to say we have
pellets and corn everywhere.
When we're at work she loves to listen to cultural programs on the
radio, her absolute favorite, though, (she can't stop shaking her head)
is a weatherman on the radio that has a German accent! She's very cheeky
(my mother-in-law says she's a bully, but that's not true) and won't
hesitate to attempt to eat from your plate or mouth, so now we just set
aside an extra plate for her with potatoes, pasta or cucumber. I used to
be very afraid of birds, but we get along fabulously and I have to admit
that our lives are so much brighter since she came! I can't imagine
being without her!
